Quantum statistics of the light generated by phase-conjugate resonators. Academic Article uri icon


  • We examine the quantum noise characteristics of the field produced by a phase-conjugate resonator formed from two mirrors, one of which is a phase-conjugate mirror. We show that the output field on the side of the phase-conjugate mirror can be completely squeezed. Numerical results for the quantum-statistical properties of the forward and backward output fields are given as functions of the reflectivities of the two mirrors. 1993 The American Physical Society.
